Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP obtained a settlement in the amount of $800,000 on behalf of a 32-year-old man from Brooklyn. Our client was the driver of a motor vehicle stopped on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway when he was struck in the rear by another driver. As a result of the accident, our client suffered injuries to his neck and lower back, which required cervical fusion surgery. During the course of the litigation, the firm obtained summary judgment from the court, finding the defendants were 100% responsible for causing the collision. The settlement was reached prior to the plaintiff’s deposition, resulting in the case being resolved to the benefit of our client in a speedy manner.
